MHR 701 —Managing Individuals in Organizations: Organizational Behavior and Human Resources Schoenbaum 105, M, W 8:30-10:18 am Fisher College of Business The Ohio State University Summer 2009 Professor Dr. Larry Inks Department of Management and Human Resources Office: 758 Fisher Hall Phone: 292-4591 Email: inks_3@fisher.osu.edu Office Hours : Monday 10:30-11:30 am or by appointment Course Description The purpose of this course is to study human behavior in organizational settings. In particular, we will be looking at topics related to the behavior of individuals (e.g., leadership, values and attitudes, motivation, etc.) the behavior of groups (e.g., teamwork), and organizational-level topics such as culture and organization change. We will also discuss many of the organizational practices (such as selection, training and development, compensation, etc.) that have a direct effect on these behaviors and the organization's resulting performance. In addition, as we discuss these content areas I’ll be asking you to be introspective and think about your own knowledge, skills, and abilities in these areas and how you can improve to maximize your success (both current and future) as an individual contributor and improve your personal leadership capability. While the majority of examples and situations discussed will occur in “traditional” organizations, it is important to remember that these concepts apply equally well to nontraditional organizations (non-profits, volunteer organizations, social organizations, etc.) as well. Course Text We will be using two fine textbooks in this course, with selected chapter readings from each: Kinicki, A., & Kreitner, R. (2008). Organizational Behavior: Key Concepts, Skills and Best Practices (4 th edition OR 3 rd edition). Boston, MA: McGraw-Hill. Noe, R., Hollenbeck, J., Gerhart, B., & Wright, P. (2008).
